I maintain that this game would be brilliant with a russian front expansion.
Although, expansions mess up Mods big time, OF was far more difficult to mod than CoH.

Hell yeah! And make it towards the end of the War
Pfft, it's always near the end of the war...
How about someone does the good bit where the Allies get pwned - except maybe with slightly more Panzer IVs than there really were

How about not just Normandy battles the Japanese had a part in that war to i would love to command Aussie solider battling through kokoda or commanding a American solider to raid a Jap bunker in a practical suicide mission would that be fun?

I say you could bring the Russians in! The T-34 is a good match for any Axis armor, at least compared to the Sherman. If you did this, I guess you would also need to bring in another German army; maybe include the loyal German Italians or even the SS divisions. There is so much more you could expand upon in the European theater - that is if CoH2 would have included the Pacific theater. European expansions could include the Japanese-American Infantry (which were the most decorated in the war), Russian armies, Italian armies, German SS armies, and French armies (after the liberation of course). You all have aleardy created a beautiful war game and I am thrilled to own it and to be listed in the stats. I look forward to any sequels Relic comes out with. I have a PS3 and find myself on this game more than some of the great consol games. Thank you for your time and if you would like to respond my email is: Pwilliamson1975@aol.com

Ummmm... There already is an expansion for company of heroes called Tales of Valour where you can drive your tanks, as in take direct control of a king tiger tank as if it were an fps and slaughter enemies and use tactics the ai could never do without being scripted.

I reckon Australian don't get enough credit in war or video games, i mean think about it we have been in every single war WW1 in Flanders field hundreds died the battle of the Somme and Gallipoli and the ANZAC landings hundreds of thousands of us died try to help the Brits in the war. WW2 we battled the Japs who killed thousands of us at kokoda and killed us in death camps or POW camps Weary Dunlop saved many Americans for certain death in the camps we got our homeland bombed down by the Japanese and Sydney harbor attacked by mini subs many Australian fighter pilots got send over to Britain and fought in the battle of Britain.Vietnam Battle of long tan 34 Australian solders help of more than 1 thousand Vietcong and more died in the Tet offensive more lives were lost and we are currently serving in Iran Iraq and Afghanistan we have been there every step of the way and we have been pushed into the shadows that i just wanted to say.
Thanks for listening cheers

Sorry for double post but agreed with above. Never once have I heard about Australia's involvement in the world wars. I may not be Australian but they should be included in another expansion. Also, what about Canada? We had gone farther than any nation on D-Day and it was our job to secure the Italian mainland and Sicily. What about world war 1 where we showed the world that were no longer a tiny country when we took Vimy ridge which no other nation was capable of doing. We made tactics that no other nation ever had. We gave a map of the battlefield to almost every single soldier and that allowed them to take the initiative in order to win the day. Not to mention that the training of Canadian soldiers was sometimes considered superior to other nations. We had lost over 10 000 soldiers taking that ridge, and back then that was huge amount of our population. Also that day Vimy was ours was known as the day a nation was born. What about France, Italy, Belgium, Poland, Hungary, and Romania. Those are just a few of the nations that rarely get mentioned if ever in World War 2 video games. I am sick of the stupid games about Americans. The Americans did not win the war, hell if it hadn't been for Germany's invasion of Russia the allies could have very well lost world war 2. I am tired of all these games making it seem like the war involved Americans and Germans only and it pisses me off. Their glory time is far from over and its about damn time some other people got their bloody well deserved recognition. Also, I want to see more games portraying German soldiers not as Nazis, but as Germans. Many of them were forced to fight and did not agree with the slaughter of the Jews. Many Germans didn't fight for Hitler, they fought for revenge against the nations that had so harshly damaged their once mighty country. That's my rant.

Australia and other countries besides USSR/Germany/US/UK rarely get put as full factions because it would take too much time to create and balance them and realistically, it only makes sense to put in the largest players in the war. Also, it'd be impossible to balance some of them realistically, as most of them had hugely inferior armor and aircraft or just used that of their more powerful allies.
It just wouldn't be fun to play as even a successful nation like Finland if all you got was basic infantry and maybe a few German Stugs.

The big players include Canada because in world war 2 "Alright, Canadians, you take care of the Italians with minor support from others and you invade Normandy while the rest of us all gang up on Germany with the vast majority of our armies, have fun." Also, let us not forget the brave polish cavalry who would charge tanks. It has nothing to do with difficulty doing it, it has to do with ego. There is no other reason why other nations can't be recognized instead of the US and Germany. I think that Relic should do a game during World War 1 where the main fighting factions would be Canada, Britain, France, Austria, Germany, the Belgium resistance, Italy, Serbia, Bulgaria, and the Ottoman Empire. Russia is not included since their involvement was cut short due to their revolution. There is so much that could be done with World War 1 that hasn't been done.

I agree, i mean Australians don't have inferior weaponry we have subs jet fighters high tech guns just like the rest of the world Canada are just as good as USA they just don't have as many men same with us we all have the weaponry but we don't have the people its as simple as that and its the same for all other country if it applies today it applies in WW2. I also agree with killer we get sent to some place in Italy or Indonesia fighting alongside bigger army's like the USA and when we win they get all the credit. Everyone knows about USA victory in the Pacific but what about the poor Australian we help free Singapore and don't get any credit it all went to the USA and Britain we also were in Italy helping the Canadians and we don't get any mention people forget the war was not won in a day by USA and USSR it was won by them PLUS smaller fractions like Canadians Australians and French people all working together, why must they get all the credit, i would love to play as a Australian soldier in Kokoda rather then some American soldier batting at Wake island. Move over you have had your time in the sun now its time to let us get at lest ONE video game were the main character is Australian rather then American we just want one lousy video game to show we had our part we played our role and thats my 2 cents
thanks for listening Cheers

How bout the battles in the pacific, would be really cool with some new features like naval battles with battlecruisers and aircraft carriers (perhaps some real air battles too) would be really great to battle it out on iwo jima, tarawa, wake, midway, makin,pearlharbour and all the other places or just simple sea and air battles without terrain.
but perhaps this would be hard to get into the coh engine and fit better in a new coh2 engine
|#15 - Posted by: Fear93 (Member) on 11-29-2008 at 06:32|
I mean it would be easy to balanace japan and the usa, japan have alot of none experienced soldiers but have high numbers and alot of different sets of traps and ambush tactics. and usa have their regular tactics
|#16 - in my oppinion ...(spelling?) - Posted by: Roy_sal (Member) on 11-30-2008 at 17:34|
tales of valor ( next expansion pack to coh) should have something i call extended doctrines, the thing is when this multiplayer mod is added you get new stuff to use, like the french resistance for the commandos, the hellcat for armor V2 End-er rocket for terror, jadtiger for tank-hunters and anything else that you think could be cool for company of heroes.... (p.s. RELIC FTW!!!!)
